America Has Lost Her ‘Voice’

Born during the life and death struggle against Nazism, the Voice of America recently turned 75. During her long years of service, she provided a beacon of hope to captive nations in Europe, and helped keep that hope alive during decades of Soviet occupation.

More recently, the Voice has provided hope to freedom-seeking peoples in the Far East, Central Asia, Iran and Africa. Companion services managed by the U.S. government’s Broadcasting Board of Governors have provided surrogate broadcasting into Russia and other countries that lack a free press.

But lately, the venerable Voice has been behaving with an immaturity, lack of vision, and unprofessionalism that have dismayed many of her dedicated, long-serving employees, who regularly critique the agency on the BBG Watch blog, as well as her supporters on Capitol Hill.

statue of liberty in flamesFrom “fake news” to the glorification of terrorists, the Voice has lost her way.

VOA’s charter, writ into law under President Gerald Ford, could not be more clear. VOA is supposed to “represent America… [and] present a balanced and comprehensive projection of significant American thought and institutions.” Instead, the Voice has become an amateurish, partisan outset, which many recently-hired journalists and managers see as a taxpayer funded CNN.

The Voice of America – the same “Voice” that is supposed to hold high our nation as of the torchlight of freedom around the world – now compares America’s President to Lenin, Stalin, and Mao.

Open the VOA’s main website on virtually any day and you will find stories and headlines that wouldn’t pass muster in any freshman journalism class.

The lead story on Monday, March 27, carried the headline, “Trump to Roll Back Obama Era Environmental Rules.”

“White House officials say President Donald Trump will sign executive orders Tuesday that would effectively dismantle Obama era environmental regulations, rekindling the highly-charged partisan debate about how human activity affects the earth’s climate, and deepening concern decades of work on global climate treaties may be unraveling,” it began.

If that were followed by a detailed explanation of what the President planned to do, and what practical implications his executive orders would have, one might be able to excuse the shoddy left-wing slant of that opening graph.

Instead, the next sentence is a quote from a global warming alarmist saying the president’s policies “would be disastrous,” and many more paragraphs of overheated rhetoric, not journalism.

On the same day, VOA noted that the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, would be testifying before the Senate intelligence committee. That certainly qualifies as news. But the VOA headline, “Senate Panel to Question Trump’s Son-in-law on Russia meetings,” suggests that Kushner was compelled to testify, an impression buttressed by the core of the article.

It turns out that Kushner volunteered to testify, a fact missing from the VOA story. Even CNN correctly acknowledged Kushner’s offer to the Senate committee in their lead paragraph.

This type of misrepresentation occurs every day in stories from the VOA Central newsroom, despite hype by VOA Director Amanda Bennett to have reformed and improved its operations.

Even worse are stories that glorify terrorists.

A March 25 story exalted the memory of a Pakistani man who was sentenced to death and executed for murdering a liberal politician who defended religious freedom.

The murderer, Mumtaz Qadri, “is now being hailed as a hero in Pakistan,” whereas the man he murdered was criticized for his “soft stand” on Asia Babi, a Christian woman who allegedly “blasphemed” Islam. “For his followers, Qadri [has become] no less than a saint,” the story gushed.

The day after Somali pirates hijacked a commercial vessel earlier this month, VOA’s Somali service ran an uncritical interview with one of the pirates, titled, “Desperate fishermen?”

VOA Director Bennett proudly posted the reporter’s words to Facebook as if they were her own. “One of the men who seized an oil tanker off the Somali coast this week tells VOA he’s not a pirate,” she wrote. VOA later corrected the headline and toned down the laudatory tone of the piece after criticized on BBG Watch.

In December, VOA ran a long profile of a Turkish-born ISIS fighter who joined the jihad and died in Syria. Clearly intended to be a piece of showcase journalism, it was nothing less than the glorification of a terrorist.

On any given day, you can go to VOA websites and find example after example of shoddy journalism, fake news, misleading headlines, and slanted reporting.

VOA editors appear not to understand or not to care about the VOA charter, which also requires them to “present the policies of the United States clearly and effectively.” This mission has been dropped entirely.

U.S. taxpayers spend over $770 million/year on U.S. government broadcasting. This includes Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Marti, and other media outlets.

For most of her 75 years, the Voice of America has been a powerful tool in the war of ideas, showing by example the attractiveness of American openness, pluralism, compassion, and tolerance.

It’s time for President Trump to appoint new management, so she can be great again.

The double standard of the Ottawa Police and Canadian Mainstream Media

iranian flagI was attacked and injured by a Muslim Iranian woman in Ottawa in front of the Parliament Hill in 2009 for waving the Real Iran Flag (image of the Lion and Sun right) in my hand. Identifying the attacker took than over 3.5 years for Ottawa police. Actually, I found her by chance in Tony Young’s website, where she and her family were invited at Tony’s open house Xmas party in December 2011.

The Muslim woman who attacked me admitted  the assault and told the detective in charge of my case that she became very emotional and upset when she saw the old Iran flag waving in my hand and could not control her anger and storm toward me to vanish the flag.

But despite her confession, the Ottawa Police decided not to press any charges against her.

FYI , after she was identified, we were informed that the woman held American Green Card but lived mostly in Ottawa with one of her daughters whose immigration case was rejected by Canada due to failing her medical test where it was given so much publicity by Mainstream Media for. But non of those MSM were interested in interviewing me and giving publicity to the assault.

I do not have anything personally against my attacker but since we live in Canada, under the rule of law, we should all be treated equally without given favoritism. I did not leave Iran to come to Canada to be accosted and persecuted by the same law that victimized me in Iran. In Canada, under Mr. Trudeau’s power,  if someone  verbally says something that a Muslim might find it ;’offensive’, she/her will be charged on the Spot by the Police.  Ottawa. Hope you realize my point and I am sure if Christ was to judge me as a Christian, He would want me to speak up for my rights.

Shortly after reading my incident report, the Ottawa police Crown Prosecutor told the police detective that there may be a bad blood between the women!!!

I told the detective, “what Bad Blood, I never saw that woman in my life before, how could be there any bad blood?”  And after 3.5 years. I found who she was…

Please read the following email sent to me by the Ottawa Police detective:

From: Detective XX
Date: Tue, 5 Nov 2013 23:01:29
To: Shabnam Asassadollahi
Subject: RE: Case # XX _The assault_ 2009 in front of the Parliament Hill

Hello Ms. Assadollahi, I have interviewed the people involved in this incident including the older woman.  After considering all the aspects of the matter, including the nature of the incident, the emotions and circumstances surrounding it, the absence of a continuation or repetition of the offence, the administration of justice, and directives from the court and crown attorney, no criminal charges will be laid in this matter.  It will be finalized by another measure which will indicate that the subject could have been charged but was not.  I am currently away from the office at the moment but will likely check my e-mail before I officially return.  Feel free to contact me by e-mail of by leaving a message at extension.

I am curious to know that if the above assault was vise-versa, how would the Ottawa Police conduct their judgment?

Obama: Do not acknowledge terrorism, or they win

In response to the latest string of terrorist attacks in Egypt, Paris and Mali, President Obama has vowed to “never, ever, ever” discuss terrorism anymore, stating that “if we acknowledge terrorism exists, then the terrorists will have won.”

Speaking from the White House Press Room, the President gave an example of the Eagles of Death Metal, an American rock band whose concert in Paris became a scene of a bloody terrorist attack earlier this month. “Those folks should have kept playing,” he said. “When they stopped playing and ran for their lives, the terrorists won. I am encouraging all citizens: if you see anything suspicious, just ignore it and keep doing what you’re doing, or the terrorists will have won.”

Taking his point further, President Obama presented his new plan to combat terrorism. “What we are determined to do is to create a safe space – right here in the White House Press Room – where we are free from the tyranny of offensive ideas, facts, and actions. So from now on, no more questions about politics, ISIS, or Donald Trump. None of that stuff. We can talk about basketball, nutrition, or beer. I’ve got some some new jokes too, if you want to hear them.”

An awkward silence that followed was interrupted by a question from the back of the room about intelligence reports concerning the Mali bombings.

President Obama responded to it by placing his index fingers in his ears and humming loudly, saying he couldn’t hear anything due to the loud noise he was making. He then stopped abruptly and invited everyone in the room to try it and see how easy it is not to hear anything.

The President then ended the press conference by saying that there was a group of random protesters outside the White House and he couldn’t wait to usher them in and meet their demands.

From the start Obama was credited by the media with bringing a touch of academic refinement to the White House. They didn’t mention that the biggest achievement of academia in recent years was the creation of “safe spaces” for students. In terms of foreign policy, that translates into creating and protecting a “safe space” between the President’s ears.

Thus, life imitates the People’s Cube once again, because way back when Obama was still a nobody, we already had an academic comrade who had placed himself in a safe space. Ivan Betinov did it before it was cool!

Militant Media and the ‘Global War on Terror’

The secret is revealed. The CIA funded and armed the world’s deadliest terrorist groups, including ISIS/ISL, al Qaeda, and others, now expanding like a plague loosed from Pandora’s box.

This unnerving fact, unraveling the fraud in global politics, was purportedly “slipped” by Vice President Joe Biden on November 19, 2015. Almost instantly thereafter deeper truths were heralded internationally by Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, as detailed below.

Curiously, all of these new revelations broke at the same time these authors published outrageous new evidence indicting radical Revisionist Zionists tied to the Obama Administration implicating Rahm Emanuel, the past White House Chief of Staff, his brother Ari Emanuel–the entertainment industry’s most powerful image builder and Hollywood “head hunter” directing the William Morris Endeavor (“WME”) agency, and their father, Dr. Benjamin M. Emanuel, who served the Irgun, a hardline Zionist terrorist organization condemned by British authorities and the 1946 Zionist Congress.

Paris Attacks BannerShockingly, it was Ari Emanuel’s WME who booked the Eagles of Death Metal band to play at the Bataclan Theatre–the bloodiest scene of the Friday-the-13th Paris attacks. From this evidence it is obvious that the owners of the Bataclan worked with WME to stage the show knowing there was an extremely high probability of planned bloodshed, because the Bataclan’s owner since “9/11″ 2015, is none other than the world’s wealthiest anti-Semite and anti-Zionist–the radical Islamic Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar, widely known to be funding ISIS/ISIL, al Qaeda, and other terrorist groups.

COMPELLING NEW EVIDENCE IN BREAKING NEWS

This stunning evidence linking the “Death Metal” show producers to the Bataclan massacre is corroborated by statements made independently by production team survivor Shawn London (during an interview with Jim Hutchinson on JimOnLight.com), as well as Russia’s RT interviewee, Pierre Janaszak, who works in the music industry and viewed the massacre from the balcony, and later while hiding in the band’s dressing room.  Janaszak was the sole survivor in that room, and observed that one of the three presumably Islamic radical gunmen was unmistakably French.

More compelling, the Eagles of Death Metal “front house” audio engineer, Mr. London, was incredulous to the fact that the two Bataclan security guards stationed at the front door where the terrorists entered and opened fire on the crowds, inexplicably survived the massacre and were shocked to see Mr. London had gotten out alive. That experience caused London to question the entire event, implying that it may Bataclan security, and possibly even the Paris police and higher-ups, had foreknowledge.

Mr. London said that just before the shooting started, a third security guard was positioned in front of the stage. He was supposed to help handle a couple of misbehaving youth. But suddenly he, and two other security guards in the front of the stage area, just walked away, left their responsibilities, seconds before the massacre began.

Later, London said he was shocked to see the Bataclan’s front door security guardsmen had gotten out alive. “I don’t know,” he said. “I’m not trying to make any, (he stuttered and stammered uncharacteristically at this point of the interview). . . . accusations that they had something to do with it, but it was really strange they got out through the front where nobody else was getting out. They were out before I got out. I just don’t understand. It’s confusing to me. . . We were with them all day. Most of the day, when the doors were open.”

“They weren’t very nice either,” Mr. London continued. “Usually security guards are pretty cool with us. They smile and talk. These guys didn’t say a word. . . . It was just odd that they were out of the building before we all made it out. And they were at the stage position while this was going on.”

The fact that the police did not show up for so long, fifteen to twenty minutes into the massacre, with the security guards employed by Qatar’s radical Islamic allied Lagardère Group having disappeared most timely before the shootings, leaves everyone having to consider the high probability that Bataclan security, and the lax Paris police, had foreknowledge and were complicit in the massacre.

vice_exposedVice Media, exposed previously by these authors for falsely reporting on Monkey Island–the hepatitis B virus lab most responsible for spreading AIDS worldwide (as shown in this Special Hollywood Spin Report on Ebola), published the first interview with the full band following the Paris attacks. The Vice program was heavily promoted by the corporate-controlled media.

Alternatively, this independent investigation report presents the sixth in our series that even the CIA/FBI’s COINTELPRO Internet “trolls” have uncharacteristically neglected.

This report addresses more than the “fallout,” per se, of the Paris attacks. This articles presents the “spin-out” from the Paris attacks. That is, the manner in which the terrorist “dog” is being “wagged” by the Militant Media “tail.”

The media is intentionally concealing and diverting from what is now most obvious: Civilization is being defrauded by a single global racketeering enterprise that is: (1) coordinating at least two terrorist organizations, one operating from Washington, DC, and the other from Doha, Qatar; and (2) orchestrating the media to broadcast messages knowingly diverting the eyes of the world to Syria and France and away from the true source of the terror.

What else would spin-doctors now claim, besides Washington having made a “mistake” backing “moderate” terrorists to eject Assad from Syria, now that the Obama administration has been caught in the act of funding and arming ISIS, and through double-agents in the world of “news and entertainment” concealing and diverting from the parties most responsible for this global genocide.

REVEALING THE CIA’S FUNDING AND ARMING OF “MODERATE” TERRORISTS

bidenOne day before the Paris attacks, Vice President Joe Biden, addressing Harvard University students at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics, candidly revealed that “[O]ur biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region  . . . so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, . . . [t]hey poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens [of] thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad; except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.

“Now you think I’m exaggerating,” Biden continued, “take a look… Now we have . . . put together a coalition of our Sunni neighbors, because America can’t once again go into a Muslim nation and be seen as the aggressor – it has to be led by Sunnis to go and attack a Sunni organization.

And that is precisely what Russian President Putin had been saying–facts ignored by all mainstream media sources in the West for a long time, as Russia implicated America’s covert action and infiltration into terrorist organizations and involvements in weapons transfers from Libya and elsewhere to Syria.

Biden informed his audience that America’s Sunni allies were responsible for funding and arming anti-Zionist extremists in Syria. Biden named Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, specifically. Yet he failed to mention who was greasing America’s palm–Qatar–a blatant diversion since most of the financing for Syrian terrorism by ISIS/ISIL has come from that most anti-Semitic nation, in alliance with the CIA, while monarch Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani invests heavily in Europe, America and China.

RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA CITES AL JAZERRA TO BLAME AMERICA

putin“We have press reports that the CIA was a major conduit for the transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria,” reported Tina Jennings of the Russia Insider. “[A] role, no doubt, facilitated by US Ambassador Christopher Stevens who was killed in Benghazi by unknown extremists,” Jennings added.

“We are also told that the US assisted in the logistics of delivering a Saudi-bankrolled transfer of Croatian weapons in 2012 to Syrian ‘rebels.’ According to the BBC: “The CIA is also reported to have been instrumental in setting up the alleged secret airlift of weapons from Croatia.

And here is The Telegraph‘s take on things:

“The shipments were allegedly paid for by Saudi Arabia at the bidding of the United States, with assistance on supplying the weapons organised through Turkey and Jordan, Syria’s neighbors.”

These weapons were later caught on video in the hands of Ahrar al-Sham, which today is a target of US airstrikes inside Syria. The New York Times went further:

“With help from the CIA, Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.”

“From offices at secret locations, American intelligence officers have helped the Arab governments shop for weapons, including a large procurement from Croatia, and have vetted rebel commanders and groups to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive, according to American officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.”

“Exactly how does that exonerate Americans from delivering weapons to ‘Al Nusra and Al Qaeda’”, questioned Jennings rhetorically. “Biden’s comments . . . were a bombshell that will be heard across the globe. They will fundamentally undermine Obama’s attempts to arm ‘moderate rebels’ and assemble a coalition that includes the very same Sunni Arab states that have helped create ISIL.”

Now, if that were true, neglecting for the sake of argument the “bigger picture” of one mob directing both sides of every conflict (i.e., through “Controlled Opposition”), then what Russia wants everyone to know is precisely what U.S. Congresswoman and Co-Chair of the Democratic National Convention, Tulsi Gabbard, prescribes to mitigate damages from the illegal secret war the CIA has been administering for the West in Syria and elsewhere.

Confusing? Yes. Secretly defrauding? Yes, again. Informative? You bet! The confusing and diverting manner in which the spin doctors are administering “damage control” and at the same time advancing the overall mission to move civilization toward “globalization” featuring One World Government and “One World Peacekeeping Force” is transparent among those informed with accurate intelligence. We are witnessing and documenting the “magician’s slight-of-hand-routine” in global governance. What Russian and American officials main mission is for the Militant Media exercises a “protection racket” to keep people believing one side or the other, never realizing that both sides are controlled by one mob trading in arms and terror.

REP. TULSI GABBARD DIRECTS BI-PARTISAN COALITION TO STOP THE COVERT ACTION IN SYRIA

gabbard2We wondered whether Rep. Gabbard grasped the “bigger picture,” so we called and e-mailed her office and press secretary in Honolulu and Washington hoping that the honorable veteran Hawaii Army National Guard major, who served in Kuwait and on the House Foreign Affairs and Homeland Security committees, might respond to our evidence the Paris attacks were staged by U.S. and Qatar agents. By press time, the Congresswoman, who was on a fact finding and diplomatic mission in Paris, had not replied.

Consistent with these author’s evidence of there being one secret enterprise administering at least two terrorist organizations from Washington and Doha, as well as the corporate-controlled Militant Media in the West, and state-controlled Militant Media in Russia and China, Rep. Gabbard output a press release on November 19, 2015, stating much more than Joe Biden did. “The U.S. is waging two wars in Syria,” the Congresswoman wrote. “The first is the war against ISIS and other Islamic extremists, which Congress authorized after the terrorist attack on 9/11.  The second war is the illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad.”

Although we applaud Rep. Gabbard’s heroic admission that the CIA had proceeded illegally, we are unclear as to whether “Tulsi” knows her efforts at legislative re-direction is consistent with the spin required for damage control. What else should America admit other than having made a “mistake.” Someone needed to step forward and cause America to back-off to save face, now Biden admitted what he did, and “the cat is out of the bag.”
“The war to overthrow Assad is counter-productive,” the Congresswoman published honestly and in good faith, “because it actually helps ISIS and other Islamic extremists achieve their goal of overthrowing the Syrian government of Assad and taking control of all of Syria—which will simply increase human suffering in the region, exacerbate the refugee crisis, and pose a greater threat to the world.  Also, the war to overthrow Assad is illegal because Congress never authorized it.”

Congressman Austin Scott joined Rep. Gabbard and wrote, “Our primary mission should be the war against ISIS, al Qaeda, and radical Islamic extremists that have operations both inside and outside of Syria and Iraq.  Those groups have carried out attacks on American allies, and are currently threatening attacks on our homeland.  This represents a clear and present danger to our citizens, and I support eliminating these radical Islamic terrorists through any means necessary.  Working to remove Assad at this stage is counter-productive to what I believe our primary mission should be.”

What if “eliminating these radical Islamic terrorists” requires exposing the Secret Government that directed the Obama White House and CIA to coordinate the Friday-the-13th attacks on Paris with complicit agents and financing from Qatar?

GABBARD’S 10 REASONS TO STOP THE WAR AGAINST ASSAD

“Here are 10 reasons the U.S. must end its war to overthrow the Syrian government,” Tulsi Gabbard’s press release stated. Between each is our analysis and commentary:

“1.     Because if we succeed in overthrowing the Syrian government of Assad, it will open the door for ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other Islamic extremists to take over all of Syria.  There will be genocide and suffering on a scale beyond our imagination.  These Islamic extremists will take over all the weaponry, infrastructure, and military hardware of the Syrian army and be more dangerous than ever before.”

In other words, we must admit having made a huge mistake in supposedly securing freedom and democracy in the Middle East.  The “Emperor wears no clothes”–our National Security Agency (NSA) has been caught fueling political instability, international insecurity, and martial law globally. We must now repent from covertly opposing Assad’s fascist government killing masses of people in Syria, to have Qatar lead the financing of radical Muslim terrorists killing masses of people in Syria. Either option will cause massive deaths in Syria, and mass movements of populations from Syria, and immigration problems globally.

And this disturbing reality is curiously timed perfectly to justify Donald Trump’s controversial anti-immigration policies, and French President François Hollande’s knee-jerk directive to close France’s borders in the wake of the Paris attacks. (In other words, there is more here than meets the lens of the Militant Media.)

“2.     Because overthrowing the Syrian government of Assad is the goal of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other Islamic extremist groups. We should not be allying ourselves with these Islamic extremists by helping them achieve their goal because it is against the security interests of the United States and all of civilization.”

Although painfully accurate, this candid concern forecasts armed troops from the Global Alliance combating ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists allied against Assad, since: (1) Qatar and other global military-industrialists will continue funding and arming the “radical” terrorists (as opposed to the “moderate” terrorists) in Syria, and Assad will more rapidly lose his control of Syria when the CIA stops fueling the “counter-terrorism” program for America’s “defense.”

“3.     Because the money and weapons the CIA is providing to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad are going directly or indirectly into the hands of the Islamic extremist groups, including al-Qaeda affiliates, al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham, and others who are the actual enemies of the United States.  These groups make up close to 90 percent of the so-called opposition forces, and are the most dominant fighters on the ground.”

Precisely why we forecast a worsening “catch-22″– armed combat troops on the streets representing the Global Alliance combating the enemies created by the global industrialists.

“4.     Because our efforts to overthrow Assad have increased and will continue to increase the strength of ISIS and other Islamic extremists, thus making them a bigger regional and global threat.”

Alternatively, now that America is virtually insolvent, already spread too thin militarily while war against China looms in the Pacific, the Cold War is heating up with Russia, and the only option is to create a One World Peacekeeping Force to combat radical religious menaces further destabilizing populations, we must increase defense spending, heighten border security, and protect our energy industry, or otherwise Judeo-Christianity will be brought to its knees by radical Islam.

“5.     Because this war has exacerbated the chaos and carnage in Syria and, along with the terror inflicted by ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups fighting to take over Syria, continues to increase the number of Syrians forced to flee their country.”

hawaii incarcerationsCorrect again. But the border insecurity and immigration dilemma will increase in either case. In Hawaii, for example, Governor Ige has invited Syrian refugees to paradise! This is both a hoax and hypocrisy given the fact that: (1) native Hawaiian’s have been culturally and genocidally damaged by America’s illegal military occupation of the former sovereign island nation.

Approximately 60 percent of the living Kanaka men are in jail. What was once a 500,000 strong native population has dwindled to less than 8,000 living in the State of Hawaii. The Hawaiian culture, the most artistically expressive and loving in aboriginal history, has been Westernized and commercialized to the max. And to what result? In recent months, armed police have directed assaults against throngs of jobless homeless victims of poverty in and around downtown Honolulu. The once pristine Ala Moana Harbor adjacent the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort in Waikiki looks like the trash dump neighboring Kenya. Ige promises Syrian refugees will do well here?

“6.     Because we should learn from our past mistakes in Iraq and Libya that U.S. wars to overthrow secular dictators (Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi) cause even more chaos and human suffering and open the door for Islamic extremists to take over in those countries.”

Learning from “past mistakes” requires two things traditionally neglected: (1) acknowledging the mistakes, who made them, and why they were made; and (2) public education through mainly the media, schools and workplaces. Not only is the media and academia financially controlled by those who made “the mistakes,” but these agents and agencies invested in chaos have a conflicting interest to conceal their mistakes so people, and generations to come, never awaken from this nightmare.

“7.     Because the U.S. has no credible government or government leader ready to bring order, security, and freedom to the people of Syria.”

Indeed, American exceptionalism and military bullying is dwindling, leaving China and Russia more credible, diplomatically powerful, and exclusively capable of applying sustainable productive pressure on Assad and his government to secure his bloody fascist dictatorship.

“8.     Because even the ‘best case’ scenario—that the U.S. successfully overthrows the Syrian government of Assad—would obligate the United States to spend trillions of dollars and the lives of American service members in the futile effort to create a new Syria.  This is what we have been trying to do in Iraq for twelve years, and we still have not succeeded.  The situation in Syria will be much more difficult than in Iraq.”

trustAgreed. The entire context of geopolitics in the Middle East is explosive and insurmountable so long as the corporate-controlled media–the Militant Media–foments war-mentality, terror, and terrorism through every television set, movie screen, and classroom. Every culture is being indoctrinated into war-making, not peace keeping and community building. The media is the terrorist, and neglected peace resource, being used to contrive and sustain war.

“9.     Because our war against the Syrian government of Assad is interfering with our being one-pointedly focused on the war to defeat ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the other Islamic extremists who are our actual enemy.”

If bringing peace to the Middle East was truly our focus, then why would any reasonably intelligent person focus “one-pointedly” on war-making with anyone? Again, the military-mentality is overwhelmingly, painfully, fearfully, and regularly reinforced using images of death and property damage to impact most powerfully We The People and mental midgets–terrorists and trouble-makers indoctrinated to hate and destroy rather than love and prosper.

“10.  Because our war to overthrow the Assad government puts us in direct conflict with Russia and increases the likelihood of war between the United States and Russia and the possibility of another world war.”

True. But isn’t that part of the plan? Produce World War III directing Russia and China against Anglo-American allies to dispose of over-population and result in One World Government, One World Peacekeeping Force, One World Bank, One World Court, One World Health Organization, and One World Economy?

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION

economist cover plusThe evidence before us is that the Paris attacks were staged, scripted, administered, and misrepresented. The timing of the aforementioned events corroborates the official malfeasance and conspiracy reality. Just as the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) was being exposed as a contrived enemy, American and Qatari funding of ISIS and Western Intelligence agencies’ involvements were acknowledged by U.S. officials and condemned by Russian propagandists.

On the home front, debate to block immigration and tighten border security, as France did instantly following the Paris attacks, provides further evidence of a coordinated international attack on civility. In addition, interviews from eye witnesses at the Bataclan massacre compound the evidence that the event was staged and produced with foreknowledge by governments and security officials.

Today, the main players not only wield the military and war industry, they also control the media. They deliver propaganda–the messages output to cause confusion rewarded in profit as civilization is railroaded into a “national security” state of chaos.

Corporate fascism, terrorism, and blood baths also create depopulation, which reduces the Oligarchy’s risk of revolution against the central bankers and political parties, popular uprisings by citizens of every nation awakening to their manipulation and enslavement.

Everyone is affected by this demonic and psychopathic racketeering enterprise, the only cure for which is to:

(1) Set examples by indicting the responsible agents and agencies operating within complicit governments, the U.S. and Qatar, on probable cause of funding and arming mass murderers, and complicity in committing genocide. The aforementioned evidence is available and useful for these proposed prosecutions. To do less would further discredit America and Qatar, and would assure continued terrorism and mass murder;

(2) Boycott, and ideally block, all mainstream Militant Media news sources redirecting civilization to independent news and intelligence providers unlikely to be corrupted and complicit in the consumer fraud and organized crime. This would send an instant dramatic message favoring civility, by suspending the social and behavioral programming underlying aggression, pubic manipulation, and subversion of ethics and basic human values for peace, prosperity, and sustainability.

3) Frustrated by intelligence failures, as the ones cited in this article, the Defense Department decided to dramatically expand its ‘black world’ (i.e., covert) operations. As reported in 2002 by William M. Arkin, military affairs analyst, Donald Rumsfeld influenced the Defense Science Board in their Summer Study on Special Operations and Joint Forces in Support of Countering Terrorism. The  classified “outbrief” was drafted to guide defense agencies on counter-terrorism that “requires new strategies, postures and organization.” The board recommended the creation of Super-Intelligence Support Activity–an organization it dubs the Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group, (P2OG)–to bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and covert deception.

Among other things, this body would launch secret operations aimed at “stimulating reactions” among terrorists and states possessing weapons of mass destruction — that is, for instance, prodding terrorist cells into action and exposing themselves to “quick-response” attacks by U.S. forces.
Such tactics would hold “states/sub-state actors accountable” and “signal to harboring states that their sovereignty will be at risk,” the briefing paper declared.

The operation was purportedly administered by one hundred “highly specialized people with unique technical and intelligence skills such as information operations, PSYOP, network attack, covert activities, SIGINT, HUMINT, SOF, influence warfare/deception operations.” This secret group is believed to have constituted a new, elite “Proactive Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG),” reporting to the National Security Council with an annual budget of $100 million.

Quoting from the article, “Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton is on the board of trustees of the RAND Corporation, an organization specializing in research and development for the United States military and intelligence sector. The Sony Archives show the flow of contacts and information between these two major US industries, whether it is RAND wanting to invite George Clooney and Kevin Spacey to events, or Lynton offering contact to Valerie Jarrett (a close advisor to Obama) or RAND desiring a partnership with IMAX for digital archiving. With this close tie to the military-industrial complex it is no surprise that Sony reached out to RAND for advice regarding its North Korea film The Interview… The Sony documents also show Sony being in possession of a brochure for an NSA-evaluated online cloud security set-up called INTEGRITY.

WikiLeaks published this leaked story including Sony data detailing influential ties to the White House and ‘Military-Industrial Complex.’ The intelligence demonstrates how the government and entertainment corporations have teamed up to run a massive psychological operation on the American people.

The Wikileaks archive reveals that the government is actively working with the corporate media to produce the sort of propaganda required to shape the foreign policy of the United States.

5) A related story concerns “The CIA’s Nest of Vipers at Sony Pictures” and involves “Virtuous War” making. The June 7, 2001, publication details the “mapping” of the Military-Industrial-Media-Entertainment Network.” Quoting from this source linked HERE:

In the Mojave Desert, off the shores of San Francisco Bay, in the hills of southern Germany, next door to Disneyworld and in the heart of Hollywood, the United States armed forces are preparing for the next war. They are fought by the military in the same manner as they are viewed by citizens, on real-time networks and by live-feed videos, on the PC and the TV, actually and virtually. Enabled by smart technologies yet constrained by political and humanitarian imperatives, a new form of high-tech, low-risk warfare is emerging, Virtuous War. In Virtuous War, James Der Derian takes the reader on a roadtrip through the future of war, where cyborg combat technologies, video games, TV news stories, Army training exercises, and Hollywood movies all blur and converge in a new military-industrial-media-entertainment network. He shows us a world in which CNN and Disney are as much a part of the battlefield as Lockheed Martin and the Pentagon, where Marine fire-teams train with the video game “Doom”, and entertainment executives design Army war-games. All the while Derian offers tremendous insight on the questions that arise as the tail of technology wags the dog of war.”

6) More recently, on March 19, 2013, the Military-Industrial- Media-Entertainment Network was further unveiled by Google/YouTube (CLICK HERE). Quoting this intelligence:

“Technology in the service of virtue has given rise to a global form of virtual violence: Virtuous War. In the 21st century, the Military-Industrial-Media-Entertainment-Network (aka The MIME-NET) has become the ‘fifth-dimension’ of U.S. hegemony. Fought in the same manner they are represented through real-time global surveillance, media dissimulation, and network-centric warfare, virtuous war deters, disciplines and destroys the “enemy” at a distance. An all-too-real matrix, MIME-NET, seamlessly merges the production, representation, and execution of war. We learn how to kill but not take responsibility for it; we encounter ‘death’ but not its tragic consequences; we now face not just the confusion but the pixelation of war and game on the same screen.” This information features
Professor James Der Derian, of the University of Sydney. He “takes the viewer on a journey through deserts real and virtual to find the ghosts in the 21st century war-machine.”

7) The Militant Media, or the “Military–industrial–media complex,” as Wikipedia describes it:

“The military–industrial–media complex is an offshoot of the military–industrial complex. Organizations like Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting have accused the military industrial media complex of using their media resources to promote militarism, which, according to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting’s hypothesis, benefits the defense resources of the company.

General Electric (which owns, but is in the process of divesting, 49% of NBC) is a subcontractor for the Tomahawk cruise missile and Patriot II missile both of which were used extensively during the Persian Gulf War.[1] General Electric also manufactures components for the B-2 stealth bomber and B-52 bomber and the E-3 AWACS aircraft which were also used extensively during the conflict. During the first Gulf War, General Electric received $2 billion in defense contracts related to weapons which would be used in Gulf War and the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq by Coalition Forces.”

Here is an adjunct to our main points:

“Paradoxical Psychological Manipulation is a technique often used by the military and the media.

A powerful strategy of clandestine brainwashing is to send a communication with two, paradoxical messages.

“Even intelligent people can be taken in by this brainwashing technology of paradoxical messaging. An example of this phenomenon is a current operation by the Advertising Council.

In June of 2003, the Ad Council was stating its overall purpose in this way: “We marshall [sic] the volunteer forces of advertising agencies and media companies to affect [sic] positive social change.” As of December, 2003, they have corrected their statement to read: “We marshal the volunteer forces of advertising agencies and media companies to effect positive social change.” You can, in the example below, interpret “effect positive change” to mean “brainwash people into fearful submission.”

One of the Council’s current operations is called the “Campaign for Freedom.” If you believe the Council,

“The initiative is designed to assist Americans during the war on terrorism through the development and distribution of timely and relevant public service messages. This first round of PSAs for the campaign has been created to celebrate our nation’s freedom and remind Americans about the importance of freedom and the need to protect it for future generations.”

“According to research, Americans are looking for messages that will inform, involve and inspire them during the war on terrorism. This inspirational campaign is advertising’s gift to America on the occasion of its birthday, Independence Day.” All of the ads conclude with the powerful tagline, “Freedom. Appreciate it. Cherish it. Protect it.”

We recommend you examine all six Ad Council “messages” to see the paradoxical communications in each.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

LEONARD G. HOROWITZ, D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H., D.N.M. (HON.), D.M.M. (HON.)

sherri kane and leonard horowitz, leonard horowitz and sherri kane, len horowitz and sherri kane, leonard horowitz, len horowitz, sherri kane, dr leonard horowitz, HorokaneDr. Leonard G. Horowitz is the world’s most prolific, best credentialed, and most controversial drug industry critic.

This music industry revolutionary, natural medicine expert, pharmaceutical industry whistleblower, and intelligence industry analyst has published eighteen books, five documentary films, and dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles.

After receiving his Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree from Tufts University, and a Master of Public Health degree from Harvard University, Dr. Horowitz went on to publish the first of three American bestsellers, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola–Nature, Accident or Intentional?. This book is largely credited by Centers for Disease Control (CDC) officials for prompting the global vaccination risk awareness movement. Dr. Horowitz’s monumental text caused several governments to reconsider their “immunization” policies, and it became the center of political debate in 2008 when Barack Obama’s minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, credited Horowitz and this book for evidencing HIV/AIDS as a genocidal weapon of mass depopulation targeting Africans and African Americans courtesy of covert U.S. military contractors named in the book.

Dr. Horowitz’s second bestseller, Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, prompted a revolution in the music and natural healing industries.

The retired dentist and naturopathic physician’s consumer health guidebook, Healing Celebrations: Miraculous Recoveries Through Ancient Scripture, Natural Medicine and Modern Science, pioneered the protocol adopted by thousands of natural healers and doctors worldwide.

His 2007 decryption of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous drawing revealed the mathematics of LOVE: The Real da Vinci CODE; and his follow-up text, the most monumental of his 30-year career, The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of LOVE, reveals “God’s creative technology,” available for revolutionizing music, recording artistry, healthcare, environmental resource protection and restoration, along with civilization’s transformation as an “enlightened species” choosing peaceful sustainable collaboration versus murderous degenerative competition and lethal consumption.

From Dr. Horowitz’s books, video productions, and documentary films, Hollywood filmmakers have drawn many ideas, including those expressed the movies INCEPTION, I Am Legand, the X-File Movie, and several others.

International acclaim and widespread acceptance of the doctor’s works revealing Solfeggio frequency physics and metaphysics has prompted the “528LOVERevolution,” which Dr. Horowitz and his partner, journalist and activist, Sherri Kane, has commercialized in the rapidly growing 528RadioNetwork.com and through his private television station, LOVE528TV.net, formed following Google/YouTube’s censorship of more than 150 of the doctor’s DVD productions.

Dr. Horowitz’s and Sherri Kane’s 528Radio.com broadcasts “medicinal music” transposed into the “LOVE frequency” of 528Hz, that resonates the sound of buzzing bees, and 528nm of greenish-yellow light at the heart of rainbows, precisely why grass is green and fills the air with electron-energized oxygen vibrating in the energy of LOVE/528.

Dr. Horowitz’s film presentation, the 528KEY movie, provides an explanation of the great opportunity provided by the 528 frequency for advancing unprecedented benefits to civilization.

INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST SHERRI KANE

If you do a Google search on Sherri Kane, you will probably notice she has been widely defamed by a seemingly large group of racist, anti-Semitic, and sexist men who obviously feel their lives spent on the Internet libeling her is a profitable pastime.

Here are some political reasons why:

Sherri Kane is America’s gutsiest investigative journalist, news commentator, psycho-social analyst, and political activist, specializing in uncovering what predators do to women, children, and even animals. She exposes human and animal rights violators, child sex traffickers, and human slavery networks, several involving high ranking government officials.

Sherri does not hesitate to investigate, analyze, and vet the dark world of government and intelligence agencies’ corruption, and agents’ complicity in organized crimes. She refutes the propaganda published to manipulate and damage people, and exposes what is being concealed by the FBI/CIA’s COINTELPRO (that was supposed to have stopped abusing people and depriving human rights in 1976 by Acts of Congress). Sherri delves into conspiracy realities so dark that very few people dare to study them.

For instance, you may have heard of the political fracas involving certain members of Congress, a high ranking official in the Republican Party, and the mysterious disappearances and abuses of children at “Boys Town” in Nebraska, called “The Franklin Cover-up.” Thanks to Ms. Kane’s heroic investigative reporting, the matter has now been exposed as “The Franklin Double-coverup.”

You may recall the Gulf Oil Crisis, maybe even the extensive coverage Jesse Ventura and TruTV gave to the “Conspiracy Theory” implicating Halliburton, BP, and TransOcean in the intentional explosion and environmental devastation in the Gulf of Mexico. Ms Kane sourced the story and appears on the segment.

Sherri wrote the foreword to Dr. Horowitz’s music-industry-transforming book, The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of Love, and co-produced and is co-starring in Dr. Horowitz’s controversial docu-comedy PHARMAWHORES: The SHOWTIME Sting of Penn & Teller, winner of the 2010 Accolade Award for “Uniqueness in Documentary Film-making.”

Ms. Kane is the Vice President of Medical Veritas online journal, has published works in newspapers, magazines and many websites, and has been interviewed worldwide including on Al Jazeera’s A9 Turkey, The Veritas Show, the BBC’s Talk Radio Europe, Late Night In The Midlands, WAC Connecticut, LA Talk Radio, and many others. She co-hosts the Hollywood Spin series of film reviews with Dr. Horowitz viewed on RevolutionTelevision.net and Vimeo’s Revolution Television Channel. Ms. Kane also co-hosted The HOROKANE Hour on LNM Radio Network with Dr. Horowitz, and co-wrote Space Pearl Harbor, reviewed in the 39-minute news program seen HERE.

Sherri is currently collaborating with Dr. Horowitz on various projects including Healthy World Organization (HWO), the alternative to the corrupt World Health Organization (WHO), HealthyWorldAffiliates.com, and advancing the power of “528 Hz” frequency for global healing, as experienced at 528Records.com,  528Radio.com, and 528Revolution.com.

GOP Media Takedown: A Recipe for Victory

It’s long been known that a leader can gain power by rallying the people against a boogeyman.

And it helps when that boogeyman is real.

When CNBC’s GOP debate moderators couldn’t help but be sanctimonious, supercilious, and self-important Wednesday night, they did more than provoke a response from their intellectual superiors. They did more than further reveal the Establishment Media as a left-wing monolith, further discredit themselves, and further cement in minds that they’re comic-book versions of journalists.

They quite literally revealed a strategy for GOP electoral gains.

I said many years ago that if I were seeking the presidency (fanciful thought), one of the entities I’d run against is the media. Why? Along with lawyers and politicians, the media is a group for which Americans have a fairly intense dislike. This is largely because as with the first two groups, a big part of the modern media’s business is lying, and no one likes being lied to. Moreover, outsiders Donald Trump and Ben Carson are leading contenders for the GOP nomination because people have lost faith in our institutions and are fed up with the establishment. And the Establishment Media, by definition, are part of the establishment. Thus, they’re ripe to be demonized.

To reiterate, no Machiavellian maneuvering is necessary here because the media are demonic in their deception. Along with entertainment and academia, they constitute a tripartite axis of cultural evil. They are Americans’ conduit of information, and how can citizens choose the right policies and politicians if they’re being fed misinformation? It’s as with a computer: if the input is wrong, the output will be wrong — and our nation’s actions won’t compute.

And taking on this enemy of America — as is the case when tackling any enemy — makes you a hero. Think about it: every candidate that joined Senator Ted Cruz in the phalanx against the media Wednesday seemed like an anti-establishment outsider bravely fighting the powers-that-be. This was true even of Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Chris Christie, despite the only true visible outsiders in the race being Trump, Carson, and Cruz.

Another factor is that the media are going to propagandize against Republican candidates regardless; it’s a given. But it won’t work nearly as well once you make clear you’re a mortal enemy of the media, which will be attended by the (correct) assumption that they’re an enemy of yours. Then when they run negative information on you, people will be more likely to dismiss it with “Well, of course they’d say that. They hate his guts!” In other words, there’s long been an undeclared media war on conservatives, but up until now rightists having generally taken the abuse quietly. And if you have to take the flak anyway, why not make sure the war is declared, an open and visible fight?

In contrast, when you play along with the media’s ridiculous questions, which range from juvenile to malicious, you not only cast yourself as someone who plays the game (paging John “Can’t do” Kasich) but lend those questions credibility; this is significant because people are influenced by what’s “accepted,” and a large segment of the electorate won’t truly recognize, independently, the questions’ inanity. But standing up and passionately pointing it out will be a light-bulb moment, making some of them say, “Hey, yeah! That was a dumb and unfair question!” You’re announcing that the media have no clothes.

So while some lament the media’s descent into overt left-wing advocacy, there is a silver lining in that cloud. In the days of Peter Jennings and Dan Rather, the media already constituted a leftist propaganda mill but were decidedly better at feigning impartiality. Today the media are even more artless, impatient, and infantile and far more often wear their banners openly. This not only means they tend to let their mask slip, but gives a smart candidate the opportunity to rip it off completely and expose the distorted visage beneath.

Running against the hated media also has an obvious byproduct: discrediting via guilt by association all whom the establishment media support, such as establishment candidate Hillary Clinton. To intensify this process, it should be treated as a given — not only because it’s true but also because what’s assumed is learned best — that the media and Democrat Party are joined at the hip. I’ve often used the line that the media are the Democrats’ “public-relations team,” and Rubio related this idea well Wednesday when he called the media the liberals’ “ultimate super PAC.”

Of course, all this would have to be effected boldly but artfully; if overdone, it could start to seem like whining. It’s also possible the media could be cowed somewhat by humiliation and retreat into Peter Jennings mode. After all, leftists have big egos and can’t tolerate what their own Saul Alinsky prescribed: mockery. Should this return to relative subtlety occur, it would make the media’s propaganda more effective. There is some question as to whether today’s new media guard — more emotion-driven than ever and conditioned to expect immediate gratification — could exercise such discipline. Yet I wouldn’t be surprised to see them regroup, at least for a time, in an effort to not be the bull in the china shop of leftist shilling.

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has been excoriated for setting up the CNBC debate, but he perhaps stumbled into gold. No, taking down incompetent propagandists is no substitute for having a fair media in the first place. But, as G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “War is not the best way of settling differences; it is the only way of preventing their being settled for you.” The media have long been launching the salvos and settling matters. It’s time to fight back in the spirit of settling their hash.

As Jihad Advances, Huffington Post Still Pushing Muslim Victimhood Myth

And they will keep pushing it right up until the moment that the jihadis are at their door.

Islam-jihad-rally

“As Jihad Advances, Huffington Post Still Pushing Muslim Victimhood Myth,” by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, October 26, 2015:

As presidential candidates are finding it tougher than ever before to ignore the reality of the global jihad, the Huffington Post is working harder than ever to push the Muslim victimhood myth.

Friday it published a whiny article by a hijab-wearing Muslim political science professor, Dalia F. Fahmy, titled “Silence on Rising Anti-Muslim Sentiment is Racist and Un-American.” This is bitterly ironic coming from HuffPo, which is unflaggingly silent about the worldwide jihad threat.

“Fear of Islam,” Fahmy claimed, “has become more prominent in everyday political discourse than ever before.” Imagine repeating this with a straight face in 2015, when Jews are being stabbed by Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar,” not just in Israel, but in France as well, as imams preach sermons in mosques while brandishing daggers and suicide vests, exhorting Muslims to stab Jews and “cut them into body parts.”

Is Dalia Fahmy okay with this incitement to genocide?

She begins her article with an account of a stabbing of a different kind: “This past Thursday, in Brooklyn, NY, a man was stabbed in the stomach in front of his wife and 5 year-old child. ‘I’m going to stab you because you’re Arabic and deserve it,’ his assailant allegedly stated.”

How do we know that the assailant said he was attacking because they were Arabs? How can we trust such claims after cases such as that of Shaima Alawadi? Kassim Alhimidi was convicted in April 2014 of beating his wife, Shaima Alawadi, to death in their California home. It was an Islamic honor killing, but it was more than that: after Shaima Alawadi was brutally beaten to death, the Alawadi family blamed Americans that oppose jihad for her murder.

Family members said they had found a note near Alawadi’s body, calling them terrorists and telling the family to go back where they came from. They said they had found a similar note at their home weeks earlier, but they didn’t keep it or report it.

The smear merchants, libelous Islamic supremacists, and their apologists went into overdrive. The media’s favorite Khomeinist and Iran nuke deal supporter, Reza Aslan, screamed bloody murder, blaming Robert Spencer and me for the murder. But when Shaima Alawadi’s husband was found to have been the perpetrator, and the “Islamophobic” note a fabrication, these jackals offered not one word of retraction or apology.

In a similar case in New Jersey, a Muslim named Kashif Parvaiz arranged the murder of his wife and told police that his wife had been attacked by “Islamophobes.”

Fahmy doesn’t mention those cases. Nor does she mention the New Jersey Muslim accused of beheading two Coptic Christians. Yet she takes the claims in the Brooklyn case at face value. But with all this precedent of deception, why should we?

Fahmy does mention, and lament, “the arrest of a boy with a clock.” Clock Boy Ahmed Mohamed is a sign of rising anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States? Clock Boy, who brought a clock that looked like a suitcase bomb to school and was then hailed as a hero worldwide and invited to the White House? Clock Boy who was celebrated at the United Nations, where he met world leaders, including the Prime Minister of Turkey?

Clock Boy who went to Sudan and hugged a genocidal and vicious mass murderer, its President Omar al-Bashir? Clock Boy who was showered with gifts by Microsoft and Google, and courted by MIT, all because he was a victim of “Islamophobia” when he wasn’t even a victim of “Islamophobia” at all, but of school officials’ zero-tolerance policy for weapons?

Meanwhile, one non-Muslim boy was suspended from school for reading the Bible during recess. Another seven-year-old boy was suspended for chewing his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun. Where are their invitations to the White House?

Remember: not 24 hours after meeting the President of the United States, Clock Boy Ahmed Mohamed’s family announced they were moving to Qatar because of “Islamophobia.” Ahmed’s sister said that Qatar was a lot like Texas, except that the family would be surrounded by “Muslims like themselves.” Isn’t that racist and supremacist?

There is no greater article of hate and misogyny than the burka. It is the most tangible anti-woman symbol known to the world. Covering up every inch of a woman is deeply offensive and insulting. But in America, Muslim women are free to wear it. In some Muslim countries under the sharia, however, Muslim women are not free not to wear it. Why doesn’t that arouse Fahmy’s ire?

Why, also, doesn’t Fahmy distinguish between beheading, jihad, and Islam? Why is fear of jihad, beheading, female genital mutilation, Jew-hatred, and creed apartheid not a value shared between Muslims and non-Muslims? Why does Fahmy ascribe opposition to all this to “anti-Muslim” sentiment? How “Islamophobic” of her.

The Huffington Post reports that the sky is green, every day, day in and day out, for years: they report that there is no jihad problem and that Muslims are victims. There is no reportage in the Huffington Post, no facts. There is fiction, only fiction. How can you argue against the anti-real? They are misleading Americans into complacency about the jihad threat. This is evil.

Crock Boy: When the Media Get Owned by a 14-year-old

Take the money and run. With the huge windfall enjoyed by the Mohamed family — of clock-bomb-arrest fame — in “Islamophobic” America, one might think that little clock-maker extraordinaire Ahmed Mohamed would head to Switzerland for an internship with Rolex. Instead, news is his whole family is moving to Qatar after the boy accepted a scholarship from the Qatar Foundation for Education. Because, you know, if you’re interested in pushing back scientific frontiers, the Islamic world is where you go.

Now, Qatar is an interesting choice. Its official state religion is Wahhabi Islam — this is also the dominant faith in Saudi Arabia. And like Saudi Arabia, the nation’s main source of legislation is Sharia law (I’m sure Ahmed’s sisters will love it {and maybe they will}). It’s quite telling, however, that the Mohamed clan would choose such a place, although not surprising, really. With Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed (talk about wearing out a name), being a Muslim activist who twice ran for the Sudan’s presidency, it wouldn’t be surprising if these people were “true believers.”

But what I really want to discuss are those other destructive true believers, in all things politically correct, who averred Crock Boy was Clock Boy and dubbed him an inventor. This brings us to the main point, something never quite articulated sufficiently.

Where’s the clock?

Experts in electronics have maintained that Ahmed’s “clock” is just the guts of an ‘80s commercial clock ripped out and placed in another housing. On the other hand, there are still liberals who believe Ahmed’s story, of being a creative scientific genius unjustly persecuted by a bigoted America.

Okay, show me. Barack Obama had originally tweeted, “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House?” But when boy genius made an appearance on the South Lawn for Monday’s Astronomy Night, his clock was conspicuously absent. Hmm….

Nor has the media treated us to expositions on the nature, construction and brilliance of Ahmed’s “invention.” They haven’t made it Exhibit A in the persecution of a budding Muslim scientist and rubbed it in the faces of those stupid enough to mistake tomorrow’s technology for today’s terrorism. My, remarkably charitable of them.

Of course, that’s what would have happened had Ahmed’s creation been more clock than crock. Instead, the device has been “disappeared.” Like a magician using misdirection to distract his audience from his sleight-of-hand, the media and Mohamed clan have made Ahmed the story. “If I was a Caucasian male, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have gotten arrested,” said the beleaguered boy. Chimed in his father, Mr. Mohamed2, “Because his name is Mohamed and because of Sept. 11, I think my son got mistreated.”

Let me clue you in, fellas: if Ahmed were of European descent and named Alex or Justin, few would have even heard his story.

He wouldn’t have been on talk shows and done a world tour visiting leaders and the U.N.

He wouldn’t have been invited to the White House.

The media wouldn’t have made a federal case out of his tale.

And he wouldn’t have gotten money, scholarships and offers of opportunities from Facebook, Google, Twitter and others.

You know, like white kid Alex Stone, arrested for writing a fictional story in which he slew a dinosaur with a gun.

Or white Texas teen Justin Carter, who sat in prison for months — to the point of becoming suicidal — for making an obvious joke in social media.

Or the kids punished for chewing a Pop-Tart, cutting paper or forming fingers into the shape of a gun. Their races? White, white and white.

Of course, Ahmed had excitedly told a former teacher after his terrible, unjust persecution, “I told you one day I’m going to be — and you told me yourself — I’m going to be really big on the Internet one day.” Even more recently he said about his experience, “I’m glad this happened to me.” I’ll bet. It’s a neat con.

I know, I’m a terrible man to thus criticize a kid. You see, though, unlike most adults — who behave as if they don’t even remember being young — I do. And I know that while many 14-year-olds can be wonderful, some are manipulative, crafty and even downright rotten. And if Ahmed is so clever, why is it inconceivable that Clock Boy could be Crock Boy, a clever little con man?

It’s also ironic that the liberals who now say criticizing a 14-year-old is off limits are often the same people who provide sex education to pre-teens and want to give 14-year-olds voting rights.

I’m not saying Ahmed knew precisely how his story would play out. But it seems that the most charitable explanation is that he tried to impress teachers with a faux creation; it’s also not inconceivable that a boy juvenile could find bringing to school something resembling a bomb amusing. After that, the Mohamed clan, activist Mohamed2 and all, took the ball and ran with it.

Also note that Ahmed has a history of misbehavior, having been suspended from junior-high school for three weeks and spending time the next year in a “reassignment center.” Of course, privacy rules mean we can’t get details on Master Ahmed’s junior-high hell-raising, but you don’t get suspended for three weeks for “blowing bubbles” in school, as his family related when brushing the matter off. Consider as well that his oldest sister, Eyman, was also suspended — for allegedly wanting to blow up her school. As National Review’s Ian Tuttle observed, “Two siblings from the same family being falsely accused of “bomb”-related offenses is, well, quite a coincidence.” Yes, quite.

But then there was the fact that the wind beneath the Mohameds’ wings, the juvenile media, would rather play useful idiot than expose Crock Boy. Part of this, no doubt, is that his tale advances the leftist victim group/victimizer group narrative. And as a Students for a Democratic Society radical once put it, “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”

Yet there’s another factor: the media are generally ignorant and deluded.

And sometimes downright stupid.

There’s also a psychological phenomenon whereby people would rather participate in a fraud than admit they’d been duped. It’s “‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ — lest I fully realize I’m a dope.”

If those of us saying Clock Boy is Crock Boy are wrong, there was always a simple way to prove it. Exhibit A, the smoking gun — the clock. Where’s the clock?

Oh, yeah, it’s in the corn field with Hillary’s emails.

The Media Frenzy on a News Story That Hadn’t Even Happened

There was a great deal of mainstream media frenzy over the last few days about “heavily armed protesters” supposedly set to menace and harass innocent people at mosques nationwide. The media treated these protests as if it were absolutely gratuitous and offensive to hold protests at mosques, without making any mention, of course, of the fact that in four separate studies, each independent of one another, conducted by different groups since 1998 (including a Muslim group), each found that 80% of mosques in the US were teaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity to replace the U.S. Constitution with Sharia. The other 20% have not repudiated or separated themselves institutionally from the majority.

In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of American mosques taught the “extremist ideology.” Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. And in the summer of 2011 came another study showing that only 19% of mosques in U.S. don’t teach jihad violence and/or Islamic supremacism.

The coverage also, predictably enough, ignored the fact that the some of the protesters were armed only because of violence committed by Islamic jihadists against non-Muslims. No one was going to get shot at or killed unless jihadis showed up, and so in the event, no one was hurt.

The hysteria of Islamic supremacists was likewise predictable, and ironic in light of recent news stories such as these, about which, of course, they said not a word:

And that’s just going back three weeks. But none of these stories received the mainstream media attention that these protests did. And as Pamela Geller shows in this article, the media was already framing its narrative before the protests even happened.

“The Media Frenzy on a News Story That Hasn’t Even Happened,” by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, October 9, 2015:

The media is in a constant state of frenzied panic to advance and promote the lie of Islamophobia and the Muslim-victimhood myth. Despite a complete lack of any real evidence, the media frames opposition of jihad terror, FGM, creed apartheid, gender apartheid as “islamophobia,” or this pearl, “anti-Muslim extremists,” as if one should support those things.

They take their marching orders from terror-tied groups like CAIR  and ISNA.

And the media mania to advance this complete fiction is at a fever pitch this week. There have been a number of news stories, crafted from whole cloth, about armed islamophobes descending upon poor, victimized Muslims this weekend. Protests against jihad terror are a rational response to the unspeakable carnage in the cause of Islam. But rest assured that the media will be at these protests, looking to capture a plant or infiltrator to splash across their front pages. The same pages that never print the word jihad.

The media is aligned with the jihad force, and no amount of death and destruction, rape and ruin is going to change one column inch of their narrative. Do they ever ask why not one mosque has instituted programs against jihad recruitment? Or why there is a mosque behind every jihad attack?

Here is a typical email exchange (unedited) between a US News and World Report reporter and me. Needless to say, they didn’t run it:

Steven Nelson of U.S. News & World Report wrote this to me:

Pam [sic],

I’m working on an article about this weekend’s anti-Islam mosque rallies. Do you support these, or have any involvement in them? And do you believe it’s possible they could they backfire and actually help radicalize some Muslims?

Steven Nelson

My response:

Steven,

I have no involvement in them. I support any lawful and peaceful effort to raise awareness of the nature and the magnitude of the jihad threat, and to defend the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of all people before the law, and individual rights. Your question about their backfiring and “radicalizing” Muslims is absurd. If a Muslim rejects and opposes jihad terror, he isn’t going to turn to jihad terror because of some anti-jihad protesters. In fact, Muslims who sincerely oppose jihad terror should join the protests. The media in a lather about something that has not even happened, presupposing that there will be violence against innocent Muslims, as it always does after every jihad attack and plot. Yet such violence never actually happens. The media is more concerned with those who oppose jihad terror than they are with jihad terror itself, and its death toll and the destruction it wreaks on countries, communities and entire cultures.

Steven Nelson came back with this: 

Thanks for the response. Do you believe it’s a mistake for organizers to choose “every mosque” (regardless of the variety of Islam they preach) as a protest location, as it seems to conflate their anti-jihad message with targeting of all observant Muslims?

Or is that just a golden opportunity for Muslims to join in?

To which I responded: 

It’s neither. It’s a recognition of the fact that four separate studies, each independent of one another, conducted by different groups since 1998 (including a Muslim group), each found that 80% of mosques in the US were teaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity to replace the U.S. Constitution with Sharia. The other 20% have not repudiated or separated themselves institutionally from the majority.

Perhaps they are protesting mosques because right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State. I expect that the organizers are trying to raise awareness about the need for Muslims in the US not just to denounce ISIS, but to teach young Muslims why this understanding of Islam is wrong and must be rejected. While Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against this view of Islam.

I did not hear back, so I wrote to Steve: 

Steven, Please send a link to your piece. I would love to share it with my readers.

And he basically said, uh, never mind.

Pam,

Right now it looks like we’re going to wait and see what happens this weekend. I’ll be sure to let you know if I end up using your commentary.

Steven

But the Washington Post was beating the jihad drum and ran with this vicious propaganda quoting Heidi Beirich of the far-left hate group the Southern Poverty Law Center, which smears and defames anyone who opposes its hateful, authoritarian agenda. Beirich, the article says, “describes the protesters as a loose affiliation of anti-Muslim extremists who do not seem to be organized by larger, better-known anti-Muslim groups, such as Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative. She said: “This mix of racist groups, anti-Muslim groups and anti-government groups is basically a recipe for disaster.”

No. What is a recipe for disaster is how the mainstream media abets U.S. Muslim groups’ efforts to portray Muslims as victims and deflect attention away from the genuine threat of jihad terror.

Pulling Back the Curtain on the Media’s Bias

Have they no shame? Can America’s ideologically constipated, left wing, mainstream media get any worse? The answer appears to be yes. After largely ignoring the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos and instead focusing on Marco Rubio’s wife’s driving violations, they have now moved on to Donald Trump and Kim Davis.

You likely saw the widely reported story about the two brothers from Boston who allegedly beat up a homeless man and, after being caught, were reported to have told police officials, “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.” But, did you see the other headline? The headline that read, “Alleged Manhattan Gunman was an Elizabeth Warren Supporter”?

Unless you read Conservative Review, Breitbart, or Heavy.com, then the odds of you reading this story are minuscule. The general premise the ideologically slanted mainstream media has been working with in its attempt to ensure maximum distribution of the Trump headline while suppressing the Warren headline, is “Conservativism inspires violence.”

Exposing media bias in cases like this is critical because the members of the media who are promoting the Trump story were not saying, “political speech inspires violence” they were saying “CONSERVATISM inspires violence.” Sadly, this is not the first time we have seen this theme appear in the writings of media figures on both the reporting, and opinion, sides of the media house.

Far left opinion columnist Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post tried this same sleight-of-hand trick when he disingenuously tried to pin some of the blame on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by Jared Loughner, writing that she should “consider being quiet for a while” after the shooting. Robinson, either not bright enough to realize that his Palin hit piece was an anti-free speech screed, or so ideologically married to hard-left ideology that he was blind to the irony, penned a piece just three years later, absolving President Obama, Al Sharpton, and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio for the actions of cop killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley (who was reported to have been inspired by a movement these far left political figures vocally supported). Robinson jumped the credibility shark in his subsequent piece by writing that they “are in NO WAY responsible” (emphasis mine).

Other committed leftist columnist, Dana Milbank, also of the Washington Post, is another hypocrite anxious to sacrifice his credibility for Internet clicks from rabid leftists. Milbank, who was quick to celebrate civil disobedience on the part of immigration activists who aligned with his ideologically leanings, even asking the President to join in the protest where illegal immigrants were present, was, hypocritically, quick to condemn civil disobedience in the case of Kim Davis. Milbank ridiculously attempts to explain away his hypocrisy by claiming that ignoring the law is okay as long as it doesn’t involve “ignoring court orders.”

Sadly, Milbank is serious with his outrageous attempt to be logical and consistent. In Milbank’s bizarre world, it’s okay to violate clearly written laws which conflict with far leftist ideology because this is the “good” civil disobedience, not involving “court orders” but, when a registered Democrat such as Kim Davis, engages in an act of civil disobedience, based on a sincere religious objection, and the cause conflicts with leftist thinking, then she deserves to be jailed. Don’t try to make sense out of this because you will pull your hair out in the process.

These blatant inconsistencies and hypocrisies are not an accident. The organized left doesn’t believe in principled civil disobedience, they believe in the accumulation of power at any cost, the Constitution and the rule of law be damned. If jailing Kim Davis in perpetuity would advance their end game of dismantling the traditional family and instilling cultural relatively from the home, to the school, to the government, then that is exactly what they would do. The far left’s inclination will always be to suppress opposing political views because the movement’s scandalous flirtations with socialism can only evolve into a successful marriage if government force is involved and, tragically, history is clear on this.

Whether it’s punishing religious freedom, verbal policing on college campuses, FEC Chairwoman Ann Ravel’s push for regulating political speech online, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s push for expanded control over the web, the IRS, and their targeting of conservative groups, or the President’s dangerous rhetoric, directed at his political opposition, they will continue to take every opportunity to try to intimidate conservatives through the media, the regulatory and law enforcement infrastructure, and the legislative process.

So just stop pretending. People in positions of public influence such as Eugene Robinson and Dana Milbank should just be honest and tell America how they really feel. If you disagree with us we will support whatever means we need to do, including, but not limited to, destroying your name, jailing you, lying about you, and creating disingenuous false narratives, to ensure that we crush and silence you.

Information is power and the ability to see and bring attention to the constant stream of obvious media hypocrisy is a weapon we must employ to counter their endless feed of bogus narratives. It can be depressing to watch leftist activists pretend to be unbiased journalists or rational opinion writers but, on a positive note, we are winning the long game. Yes, we are winning due to the commitment of many conservatives, Libertarians and Republicans to exposing media trickery. Pulling back the curtain and exposing media bias has dissolved the trust between the media and Americans searching for the truth. Keep up the fight and whenever you see these examples of bias, get your letter to the editor ready, fire up your social media accounts, cancel your subscriptions, and get your game face on. This fight is too important to lose.

Biased Media vs. Behavioral Standards

I love her because she is a little over a hundred pounds, 5’2” gutsy fired ball. However, every time we fly, I pray she makes it through TSA without losing her cool. My wife Mary despises the gross infringement upon her rights and being “molested by TSA.” Mark Steyn hosting Rush’s radio show succinctly articulated the source of my wife’s outrage.

TSA-SCREENING-OVER-75-large570

TSA agent screening grandmother.

“Your grandmother in the wheelchair has to lift up her skirt and show her colostomy bag to the TSA until the end of time. Your grandfather, who got blown up serving his country in a war and has a leg brace, has to be degraded and show that to officialdom at the airport until the end of time. But millions and millions of people can just walk into the selfsame country across the southern border, and we’re supposed to just accept it.” -Mark Steyn

Meanwhile, the GOP, the MSM and political experts continue to scratch their heads, puzzled why Trump’s poll numbers rise every time he verbally slaps a reporter (operative) pushing the Left’s PC agenda. Mary’s outrage is shared by millions.

We all know the mainstream media is bias. But they appear to have totally come out-of-the-closet exposing their true identity as Leftist operatives. It was infuriating watching a CNN interviewer hammering Republican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson. This despicable jerk kept trying to twist Dr. Carson’s words to mean Dr. Carson wants to bomb refugees with drones

Dr. Carson is an extraordinarily kind, gentle and wise man; humanity flowing from his very being. I wanted to slap the interviewer on Dr. Carson’s behalf. (Just kidding.) Clearly, the Leftist operative interviewer was trying to infer that you never know what those crazy mean-spirited Republicans will do.

Also, infuriating and evil is the MSM hiding the sick scandal happening at Planned Parenthood.

In the latest video released exposing Planned Parenthood black marketing baby body parts, one of PP’s clients joked about shipping whole heads of aborted babies to research labs. I was stunned by the lack of media coverage and national outrage. Have we grown numb?

Planned_Parenthood_DNCMy wife Mary said, “No, we have not. Outraged Americans held 200 huge rallies nationwide clamoring for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. And yet, the MSM is mute regarding the national outcry against PP. Once again, the mainstream media are proving themselves to be operatives of evil; protecting PP by shielding the American people from the truth.

Mary and I are longtime friends with a liberal couple. Getting their news solely from far left media outlets, they oppose defunding PP. We plan to share the horrific PP videos with them. If our liberal friends still rally behind PP, I no longer want them in my life.

Their loyalty to PP means they are disciples of the religion of Liberalism. Its sacrament is abortion. The murder and abuse of babies is fair-game in their war on conservatives and behavior standards. That is off-the-chain evil folks.

A trait I have noticed in this couple and Leftist media is their resentment of behavioral standards. They are thrilled when anyone striving to be morally upright fails. They celebrate depravity. As crazy as it sounds, the liberal couple likes Mary and I because we are among the few people in their lives they can trust. And yet, they resent our goody-two-shoes Christianity.

At the core of the Left’s relentless assault on traditional American values is their hatred of behavioral standards.

Black Superbowl quarterback Russell Wilson said he was following God’s plan, waiting to have sex after marriage. This made Wilson a MSM laughing stock. With 70% black out-of-wedlock births which leads to gangs, jail and poverty, the MSM attacking the black superstar did black youths a huge disservice.

For years the Left despised the Duggar family’s wholesome hit TV show. It was an oasis in a desert wasteland were the Left/MSM seeks to make depravity normal. When son, Josh Duggar’s moral failures lead to the cancellation of his parent’s TV show, the MSM rejoiced. Why? The Duggars promoted behavioral standards.

Behavior has consequences. Josh Duggar did the deed and is paying the price. He has asked for forgiveness. I pray this young man will turn his life around. Throughout the Bible men of God had moral failures. Moses murdered a man. King David stole a man’s wife and had him killed. Moses and King David repented and became great men of God.

The Left presents the absurd argument that unless one is morally perfect, they have no right to suggest behavioral standards. The Bibles says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Are we suppose to throw out all behavioral standards because humans are incapable of keeping them perfectly? Apparently, the Left says yes.

Angry, fearful and hopeless, Americans see the rapid moral decline of our culture, deathly afraid to say anything. Trump is taking the heat for saying what millions are thinking.

homosexuality is a sinHere is another example of the Left’s war on behavioral standards. Self-proclaimed former lesbian Dr. Rosario Butterfield said because God condemns homosexual behavior, the Left demands man’s approval. Masterfully portraying themselves as victims, in reality, homosexuals are the aggressors. Appeasing the Left/MSM, SCOTUS repealed American’s right to freely practice their religion. Christians are government mandated to embrace anti-biblical behavioral or suffer economic death and/or jail time. 

Still, I get the sense that the Left has overplayed its hand and there’s a new sheriff in town. Americans are beginning to speak-out and push back against PC sacred cows such as Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration and the radical homosexual agenda.

Excellent! It’s about time.

The Anchor Baby Tale is One Big Myth

blog_anchor_babiesLately the media has made a huge issue of immigration, especially illegal immigration and the whole Anchor Baby issue. This is only because Donald Trump has opened his big mouth numerous times on the subject and forced the other Republican Candidates for President to react and comment.  Often with the same fiery, hard line positions as Trump has espoused.

Let me first say that I am not against legal immigration. In fact, most Conservatives are not against legal immigration. We welcome LEGAL immigration. The simple fact is when it comes to the population of the Western Hemisphere, we are all immigrants including the Native Americans that were here before Europeans and others showed up. The USA is a beacon of hope around the world.  We stand for truth, justice, and a better way of life.  In short, America stands for opportunity and just about everyone on this planet knows that and this is why we have people from nearly every nation on earth living within our borders.  We are a great melting pot and we give those who are willing to work hard and work smart, the chance at a better life. They can even get rich if they so choose to.

I truly believe that America is humanity’s last hope for freedom and survival because we enjoy freedoms here that many around the world can only dream about.  We enjoy such freedom and opportunity that some people will try to subvert the very nation they wish to live and grow within. Those kinds of people are what we rightly call illegal immigrants or illegal alien and this is a huge problem because it is costing the legal citizens, the taxpayer a lot of money on an annual basis.  We are spending billions of tax dollars everywhere in our society, from local government, all the way up to the Federal Government level.

The truth is, we have lots of laws on the books currently to take care of this problem but we have a government that will not enforce those laws.  In fact, we have a Federal Government that even actively seeks to prevent local and state governments from enforcing the immigration laws.  We don’t need to change or add more laws.  We don’t need to give illegal immigrants a pathway to legal citizenship.  We don’t need to overhaul our immigration system because all’s we need to do is enforce the current plethora of laws already on the books that covers immigration into the USA.

We should not allow the so-called Anchor Baby method of getting into the USA on a legal basis.  In fact, the Republicans who are speaking out against this are on the right track.  Even the Constitution really states that you must come into the USA legally in order to have citizenship bestowed upon them or their children.  We are one of less than 5 nations on the entire planet that allows for this Anchor Baby scam.  And yes it is a scam.  A scam perpetrated by people illegally entering our nation for the purpose of making sure that their unborn child is born north of the Rio Grande River.

Oh, we have heard that the 14th Amendment of the Constitution allows for Anchor Babies.  Actually, if one READS that Amendment and the entire Constitution as well as the letters and speeches from the person who actually wrote the 14th Amendment, you would see and understand that this particular Amendment does not allow for Anchor Babies.  And even though the left leaning media keeps saying that there are lots of cases, including the Supreme Court ruling that “Anchor Babies” is the law of the land, it is not true because there are no major court cases that take this into account.

None.

The truth is that the Constitution including the 14th Amendment, states that the Congress shall be the sole determiner of who is a citizen and how people can become citizens.  We have a legal mechanism by which people can enter this nation legally, work legally, and become citizens legally.  Rhetoric is not a law, rhetoric is not a policy, and rhetoric is not the Constitution.  Rhetoric is nothing more than feelings and feelings have no merit when it comes to the law of the land. So is Donald Trump and some of the other Republican candidates correct?  Yes they are.  And it is pretty simple to fix our current immigration problems.  Build the border fence/wall which has already been approved because that will drastically cut down on the illegal invasion of our nation.  Then we need to find every single person here illegally and send them back to their home country. And if someone commits a crime within our nation, they get kicked out of this country and are banned for life from ever returning and if they return they shall face harsh penalty.  Just like other nation’s do.  And contrary to what some on the left claim, we can find them.  In fact we know who and where many of them are already.

In the end, this sort of hard line policy will cost the American taxpayer less money.  It will make our nation and our citizens safer from all kinds of foreign threats and criminals and it will allow for a more robust economy because jobs will not have this downward wage pressure due to illegals getting jobs at below market prices.  A strong, legal, and robust immigration policy can be a boon to the United States again just like it was not so long ago.  But instead we have politicians and leaders and statesmen who will not do the right thing and protect the Constitution and the American People.

Do we really need comprehensive reform to do that?  Of course not.  All we have to do is follow the Constitution and the immigration laws already on the books.

VIDEO: How the Western Establishment Conceals Muslim Persecution of Christians by Raymond Ibrahim

On June 11th, I delivered a lecture on Capitol Hill, Washington D.C. It was part of Coptic Solidarity’s sixth annual conference. My topic was the failures and cover ups of the Western establishment—academia, government, and mainstream media—concerning the rampant persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

This 15-minute video is from my lecture:

Media jihad: Diet Coke vs. Decapitation by Pamela Geller

“A blatantly revealing moment of radical media activism, otherwise known as ‘news coverage.’”

“Media jihad: Diet Coke vs. decapitation,” by Pamela Geller, WND, June 7, 2015:

Last week brought us a blatantly revealing moment of radical media activism, otherwise known today as “news coverage.”

Two news stories. In one, an American was targeted for beheading by members of the American Muslim community because the target would not adhere to the blasphemy laws under the Shariah. I was the target, and this was the media coverage:

CNN’s Erin Burnett asks Pamela Geller: Don’t You Really Relish All These Muslim Terrorists Trying to Kill You?

“Activist says Boston beheading plot targeted her; police express doubt”

Who is anti-Islamic activist Pamela Geller?

Pamela Geller Calls Allegedly Being Targeted for Beheading by Terror Suspect ‘Chilling’

The depraved media have tried to distract and obfuscate the real story here, which is that ISIS and its devout followers in America are targeting for death Americans on our home soil. I have been targeted for assassination twice in just four weeks. The headline Reuters ran, “Activist says Boston beheading plot targeted her; police express doubt,” is false and vicious.

Meanwhile, Associated Press ran the truth on Friday: “Police confirm Pamela Geller was initial target of Boston Muslims’ jihad terror plot.”

The other news story: A 31-year-old terror-tied Muslim woman went on social media and decried United Airlines for not giving her a can of Diet Coke in the way that she demanded: unopened. Under the hashtag #IslamophobiaIsReal, she wrote: “I am sitting on a United Airlines flight in the air 30,000ft above and I am in tears of humiliation from discrimination. The flight attendant asked me what I would like to drink and I requested a can of diet coke. She brought me a can that was open so I requested an unopened can due to hygienic reasons.”

A fellow passenger claimed that Diet Coke Muslim Tahera Ahmad was a rude liar. Other passengers fear coming forward for fear of being publicly smeared as Islamophobic! Bigoted! Racist! – even though Islam is not a race.

Heads exploded in an Islamophobia-fueled frenzy in newsrooms everywhere.

The New York Times covered only one of these two stories. Guess which one. In fact, it ran three stories about this Muslima supremacist’s whining complaint (since proven false) that the reason she could only get a full cup of Diet Coke and not an unopened can was because of Islamofauxbia. While it lavished coverage upon the Diet Coke jihad, the New York Times did not cover the beheading plot at all.

This became national and international news – the media were outraged at United Airlines. The National Catholic Register declared: “Fight Islamophobia in America.”

Meanwhile, who is Tahera Ahmad? In late December, she attended the MAS-ICNA, or Muslim American Society-Islamic Circle of North America, conference, which featured prominent Muslim leaders with links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

One month earlier, Ahmad posted a picture to Facebook of her with Suhaib Webb, who was then Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston, where Boston Marathon jihadis Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev and many other jihadis worshiped. Webb was once a friend of Anwar al-Awlaki.

Ahmad is also “well-known” to Yasir Qadhi, a Muslim cleric who once called for jihad against non-Muslims. She was part of a Muslim Public Affairs Council, or MPAC,delegation to the Obama White House; MPAC was founded by Muslim Brotherhood members. She has recited the Quran at an Islamic Society of North America convention; ISNA is yet another Muslim Brotherhood-linked group.

United’s first statement, now erased from the web, said the flight attendant “attempted several times to accommodate Ms. Ahmad’s beverage request.” The flight attendant has been fired after the media-waged jihad against United.

I expect this from the media, but I will never fly United again.

And as for the enemedia, they are aligned with the jihad force, and their mission is to destroy the few who dare speak candidly about the jihad threat.

Stalinism and the Destabilization of America

Stalin’s policy of Divide and Conquer has been implemented in many different areas and aspects of our society, including a racial division. The events in Ferguson, Baltimore, Wisconsin and Cleveland had confirmed it. It is a continuation of WWIII against America the Beautiful designed by our Founding Fathers. There are several factors that inflamed the predicament, yet nobody is talking about the major one–Stalin’s ideology of Soviet Fascism to obtain control of the local law-enforcement to nationalize and federalize it, like Stalin did in the Soviet Union. Obama began this policy within his first five years–dozens of agencies are being investigated. To know the source of that policy, the Stalin’s era must be studied by the next generations, as Stalin’s socio-political idea impacted the world during the last hundred years. Be prepared for the open season on the policemen and remember the definition of the Soviet Mafia, where politics intertwine with organized crime. The police already feel under the siege. Be prepared for a lot of killings and mob rules in America.

Blacks vs. Whites

It is for a reason, I have started this series with Marxist ideology. Karl Marx’s theory of Socialism and Communism is both a fraud and a utopia. Yet…the idea in the beginning of his historical research of socio-economic stages within the development of civilization was a logical one. While teaching in New York City, I have presented the idea to my students. Baltic Winds, Xlibris, 2002. In short, Marx as a historian was searching for productive forces in history. I accept his theory of history up to his fantasy of Socialism and Communism. As a matter of fact, his idea of productive forces in history maybe actually presents a factual development of the stages within our civilization. It sounded logical and reasonable to me. But I am not a philosopher or sociologist and I will present it in a possibly simplistic way. So…

The primitive men had difficulties in finding food alone. Therefore, human beings created rudimentary form of organization known in the modern terms as tribes to ease their existence. Marx called it the first stage of the human civilization. To achieve more productivity greater numbers of people were organized to create and improve a more productive force. The second socio-economic stage of civilization Marx identified as a slavery. Please keep in mind, the slavery took place worldwide at a certain time, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity. For your information: slavery or serfdom in Russia was abolished by Alexander II- Liberator in the exact time slavery was abolished by President Abraham Lincoln in the U.S. The next stage of civilization was supposed to provide the huge number of people with food. Marx called the third stage of civilization feudalism–the interactions or contracts between land-lords and vassals in developing the agricultural productive forces to provide the populace with the food. The fourth stage of human civilization was capitalism. To me those stages sounds logical, as they reflect the world history.

The word slavery has been forgotten in Russia, Brazil, and in the rest of the world with homogeneous populations. In America, contrary to the rest of the world the notion of slavery intensified the racial hostility. My explanation is a simple one: None of the other countries of the world had such a visual difference as a COLOR. The COLOR is the inflammatory factor. In addition to that, the majority of the Blacks were brought to America from the second stage of civilization to the forth one, from slavery to capitalism, missing one stage in the development of civilization–feudalism. This is a very important factor. Do not talk to the Black crowd in Ferguson and Baltimore, including the prosecutor of Baltimore, they can’t understand this factor, they need time and the civic education, which Europe went through during 500 years. For them it is easy to destroy, loot, and burn cars than to create and produce. Look objectively at the statistics of crime among Blacks in America. Our homicide rate is equal to that of Yemen. The picture will confirm my point—Blacks are killing Blacks—11 percent of Blacks commit 70 percent of crimes. The role of the police becomes even more significant under these circumstances. Obama’s actions against the police are totally contradictory and inconsistent with the American national interests.

There is another factor that aggravates the racial hostility as well– Stalin’s ideology of Divide and Conquer. With the lack of the historical development in America, Blacks have some resemblance to the Muslim world that has not been reformed since the seventh century. This resemblance is very important as Stalin’s ideology and strategy have been applied to all minorities within Russia and outside the country. The KGB Chairman Yuri Andropov, a devoted Stalin’s disciple created the myth of a “Palestinian Nation” against Israel. One of his statements illustrated it the best: “the Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism, and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch. Terrorism and violence against Israel and her master, American Zionism, would flow naturally from the Muslims’ religious fervor.” Russian Footsteps, by Ion Mihai Pacepa, National Review Online, August 24, 2008.)

A couple of days ago, I heard Dr. Ben Carson, a Black candidate of the Republican Party for the presidency of the United States, who said: “My Mother did not want to be a victim.” A victim and victimology are the key words in the resemblance of the big group of the Blacks with the Muslims. The Blacks were indoctrinated by the ideology of Soviet Fascism the same way that the part of the Muslims were indoctrinated for several decades. Ben Carson is a uniquely qualified for the presidency of our country–he is a contemporary Uncle Tom and the majority of Blacks will not vote for him. Of course, there are some differences between the large group of Blacks and Islamic Jihadists, yet both, for different reasons are fighting America the Beautiful. Have you heard the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi? He, a Muslim himself had admitted that Islam itself has a problem and should be reformed. Have you heard any similar statements from the Black leaders of America? No, on the contrary—division is the only their motive.

Some Blacks called the White people the Oppressors, some are talking about “White Privileges” some “wanted to see cops dead.” I saw them all in Ferguson and Baltimore and I am glad that the notions of “the agents of influence” and the Soviet Mafia, designed by Soviet Fascism are already known to you. If you dig deeper the backgrounds of Sharpton and J. Jackson, you will find their quite strange political connections. Just think and research the root causes and history of the Black movement and you’ll be able to see how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. I did it in my books discussing Soviet Fascism. All factors mentioned by me, are reinforce one another. Only actual knowledge can solve the problem—both the Blacks and the political Islamite are indoctrinated with totalitarian ideology, I called Stalinism or Soviet Fascism. Knowledge of this ideology is a must.

As a young girl, I read Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the slavery in the far away America, it disgusted me, though it was a story of the past. Yet, it was something, I had never imagined and the negative feeling for slavery was left in my memory forever. Then I did not know that driven by a passionate hatred of slavery, “Bitchier Stow found time to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which became the most influential novel in American history and a catalyst for radical change both at home and abroad.” Living in America I found a complete revers of her ideas. Today,” the book has a decidedly different reputation, thanks to the popular image of its titular character, Uncle Tom — whose name has become a byword for a spineless sellout, a black man who betrays his race.”

What do you think? Who divided Black Americans on the crowd of Blacks and a group of Uncle Toms? The crowd of the Blacks, as a rule are not well educated supporters of the Democrats. Who did give the name of the other group of the Blacks Uncle Toms? Who are Uncle Toms? The answer is in the encyclopedia– “A black man who will do anything to stay in good standing with “the whites.” For me it is a good characterization of the group, the group is for unity with the rest of America. The group comprised of the educated Blacks is predominantly Republican. The unity bequeathed by the Founding Fathers is a must for them. Yet our Unity is the crux of the matter for those who are implementing the ideology of DIVISION. The division is not only racial, but more of an ideological one. “Black citizens appear to conclude that they do not share common political values with Republicans, whether black or not,” said the study. “As a consequence, black Republican candidates simply do not evoke the same response from black citizens as black Democratic candidates.” Do you recognize the division, the ideology of Soviet Fascism perpetrated by the Democrats making Blacks the victims of the society?

Cuba mi Patria que AdoroExcerpts from Cuba Mi Patria Que Adoro, Amazon.com, 2012, P. 108. Translated by. Angela M. Aguirre, Ph.D.:

Those unsuspecting Cubans
That helped the traitor Fidel
They brought together with him
The horrendous communism….
He [Castro] urged blacks to start a fight
Against white with such hatred
Thus turning the whole society
Into a racial war.

The jackal came out of Oriente
To disunite all the Cubans
That were like brothers and sisters
Blacks and whites, all united.

We all lived in harmony
Like lawful citizens should.
But he brought much more:

He brought many criminals
From Russia and other countries,
To govern in our Cuba.
In his intent in punishing us,
He destroyed our nation.

Imposing a firing squad
That is always in action,
Killing blacks and whites alike
Without any distinction.

Media That Serves One Party System

Somewhere in 2011, I wrote an article titled The Communist Ideological Department; The Art of Brainwashing. I did it to acquaint you with the atmosphere of the life under Soviet Fascism. We, the former citizens of the socialist countries are constantly finding the events in America that resemble the ideological proceedings in our native countries: Cuba, the Soviet Union, Poland, Bulgaria or Venezuela. We often call mass media in America a leftist one. Alas, it is more than that. Just look at the recent article published in Huffington Post: Scientists Find Alarming Deterioration in DNA of the Urban Poor, by Nico Pitney, 05/08/02015.

I am not a scientist, but I have already written about the Soviet pseudo-science as an element of Soviet Fascism. The article in Huffington Post is attempting to explain that environment causing and changing human DNA. I think that this is the Stalin’s trick, promoted by the Democrats in their arguments for the redistribution of wealth in America. Fighting poverty have already cost American taxpayers $12-22 trillion with no result. I have already written about the same ideological trick in the Stalin’s Russia in the 1930s. Here it is: “I can’t omit another significant feature of the Soviet Socialism—pseudo-science. Have you ever heard about Academician Lysenko? To perceive all the agricultural troubles of the Soviet Union and the essence of the pseudo-science you have to know that name. A mediocre intriguer, a biologist from Ukraine, Trofim Lysenko had been building his career on the corpses of civilians dying from starvation in 1930.

“He led the campaign against geneticists of the world and exploited the ideological tenets. Stalinists had undermined the entire Soviet agriculture. In cahoots with the party bosses on the wave of Stalinist repressions and using the Marxist-Leninist ideology, he had begun a slanderous and vicious campaign against the geneticist’s scholars worldwide who proclaimed, ‘No ideology and politics in science.’ Of cause, the first were the Soviet Geneticists of the Soviet Academy of Science. Academician Vavilov was the main target of Lysenko’s campaign.” What is Happening to America, pp.80-81.Doesn’t it also remind you of the “climate change” hysteria in America?

This is not the only example of ideological infiltration into our American soil and culture. Have you heard about “bikes gangs” in Texas and killing of people there? I have addressed the issue of gangs 20 years ago when I saw two American movies of how gangs of different ilk, including drug-trafficking gangs and street gangs, are working in coordination with the political mafia, growing on our soil since the ‘50s. Stanley Kramer had warned Americans about the danger of gangs in his marvelous movie The Wild One, 1953. Nobody took it seriously. I did, watching the movie, I had sensed “an enemy’s sub-culture.” No American could conceive the situation where mobsters, gangs of organized crime, and political party would have shared a common purpose and agenda. Americans had no idea of Stalinism, Soviet Fascism, and WWIII.

Times have changed: We live in a more threatening atmosphere fifty years later and we should learn that the policy of containment we had always hoped for has never worked. It failed at its inception. The Soviets/Russians had not always moved their army of gangs into a foreign territory, they were infiltrating and using the American ones. And we gave the Soviet mafia the time to polish their criminal skills on our land. Do you remember the Soviet document of 1955? I have introduced it several times in this series. Organized crime as conceived by Stalin’s ideology has become a formidable force to fight Western civilization since the 1955. Beside organized crime, infiltration of the enemy forces was spread into different areas and aspects of life in America.

I had predicted in 1999 that the scale of Russian crimes against the world will quadruple, especially in the cyber space. Here it is: “Watch also for the further assaults on the regions rich with oil and attacks on our cyber systems, especially in California, to undermine our communication and economic power. Yet oil remains the first target—the lines for gasoline in the ‘’70s are still vivid in the mind of our enemies to create a raging and chaotic situation in America again.” The Russian Factor, Xlibris, 2006, pp.103-104. Today we found out that Russia infiltrated the cyber space of out IRS. I was talking about IRS in connection with Russia years ago. To win a war on terror we must know Russia and its Stalinist ideology, because Russia is the Evil Empire of Global Terrorism. Wake up America, we live in the 21st century!

I’d like to end the column with two interesting stories of the year 2015. One is about President Obama. He received an offer from a young Kenyan man, a proposal to marry Obama’s daughter Maliyah. The Kenyan man saw her when she was ten years old and fell in love with her. He promised to give for her 50 pigs and 100 cows. I do not know the Obama response yet. The second story is a simple one. Western civilization commemorates 800 years of Magna Carta in the year 2015.

Why Does the Media Lie About National Disasters?

When I was a young child I enjoyed reading comic books. It served as an easy escape from the chaos of city life in Queens, New York. Marvel comics had a series at the time that was titled “What if” where they would alter comic book history and ask questions like “what if Spiderman’s Uncle Ben had lived?” I recently read this piece by Sean Davis at the Federalist about the Washington Posts’ mis-reporting on Amtrak funding and, with the Marvel comic series in mind, thought “what if the dinosaur media told America the truth?”

To be fair, many in the traditional media do an excellent job of objectively reporting facts and data. But a number of others abuse their privilege and do not. The horrible Amtrak tragedy last week and some of the disingenuous reporting that has followed, illuminated this abuse of journalistic privilege as biased reporters jumped on the “more funding for Amtrak” bandwagon despite evidence that a deficiency in taxpayer money isn’t the problem.

What if the media told the truth about Social Security, taxes?

What if the dinosaur media told the truth about Amtrak and other important policy issues? I am 100 percent convinced that the country would be in a far different – and far better – place right now. Let’s engage in this thought exercise for a moment:

What if the media told the truth about Social Security? A recent Harvard/Dartmouth study (no bastion of conservativism), which received scant media coverage, was damning with regard to the future of Social Security. It revealed what many conservatives have been saying for years: that the program is “going bankrupt.” The government has been using your Social Security money as its personal piggy bank for decades. How is this not a major scandal worth an ounce of honesty from the dinosaur media and shouldn’t conservatives be credited, not maligned, for sounding the alarm?

What if the media told the truth about tax rates? When Kansas Governor Sam Brownback dramatically cut the tax rates in his state to spur job growth, and a SHORT TERM budget shortfall resulted, many biased media types leaped at the opportunity to declare, “tax cuts don’t work.” This outrageous premise is so easily refuted by Googling the words “Texas” and “job growth,” and “Florida” and “taxes,” that wasting space here to chop this faulty premise down would be a complete waste of time. Also, now that Kansas is becoming a regional leader for job growth and has dramatically lowered its unemployment rate, many in the dinosaur media are conveniently silent. Again, shouldn’t the facts speak for themselves?

What if the media told the truth about what’s really destroying our inner cities?

Decades of government interference in inner city economies, decades of public education monopolies, decades of government-run healthcare programs, decades of government bureaucrats and politicians pouring tax payer’s hard-earned money into these areas with little to nothing to show for, and decades of social programs that have decimated the family structure have accumulated to create the severe crisis of opportunity in our inner cities happening today. These policies have disconnected the people living in these inner cities from any sense of independence and ownership and the media’s refusal to tell the story of this man-made opportunity crisis is a genuine American tragedy.

Is the media even interested in getting to the root of the problem? 

Finally, what if the media told the truth about the artificial divisions being created in this country simply for personal political gains? Can you fathom how much more unified we would be as a country if the media had called out the hard left and President Obama on their fraudulent “war on women” meme early in the election cycle before it had the chance to artificially divide us?

What if the media dumped ideology in favor of honest reporting? With the privilege of being a voice in the media with a platform comes great responsibility. A responsibility to report the facts and all facets of the story, not editorialize based on one opinion.
